Pranav Singh is an undergraduate in the department of Bio-Engineering at the University of California San Diego and the winner of the recent UCSD HealthHack.  Pranav's team came up with a plan, Blueprints for Life: Design Solutions for Refugee Health.  Their central idea is to allow the community of refugees in camps to organize and tap into expertise that can improve the life of all.  Pranav is excited about the tools that bio-engineering is bringing to addressing global health challenges and encouraged by their success in the HealthHack.
